High-Quality Casting Solutions

Manufacturing A Perfect Solution Is Our Ultimate Goal!​

Taking Your Part From Concept To Production

Design-to-part investment casting capabilities allow Dal-Air Investment Castings to process a part from concept to production. Dal-Air Castings can pour the most popular material specifications for the commercial market. For full details, please review our material specifications below.

Although we specialize in high-precision investment casting parts ranging in size from a few ounces to over 10 lbs, our maximum size is 22 lbs with an envelope size of 10″x12″.

We pride ourselves in close tolerance and excellent surface finishes due to extensive process controls in our investment casting. Our investment casting technical specs are detailed here.

Hole depth featuresThrough holes depth in relation to the diameter or width. Smaller holes (<.1.00") may be limited to a 2/1 ratio whereas larger holes (>1.0″) may provide up to a 3/1 depth to width ratio. Blind holes and slots require large fillet radii at the base and half of the depth to width ratio required.
